Title: Miles Franklin in America: Her Unknown (Brilliant) Career.
Description: London & Sydney Angus & Robertson, 1981. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), black & white text-photos, small mark fore-edge, minor edgewear, autograph (author's written dedication front free flyleaf). 219 pp. After the initial success of "My Brilliant Career " in 1901, the author Miles Franklin left for America five years after its publication, and then stayed for over 20 years. She became involved with the Chicago Labour movement. Utilises Miles Franklin's own diaries and letters from that period to contend that she was neither particularly successful as a Labour union agitator for women, nor as a writer. Her writing was mediocre at best until she came back to reconnect with her homeland. ISBN: 0207145369.
